More Information
John Collier, 1901 - 1980, was British born but settled in America in 1942 and spent most of his life in Hollywood. He was especially renowned for his macabre and twisting short stories. His first title is generally regarded as his most accomplished. Collectors seeking to complete a full set of 1st editions, including dust jackets when applicable, have something of a task. It is by no means impossible though, naturally some of the signed limited editions can present a difficulty, but as with most limited editions they do tend to be kept therefore as a percentage they can be more common than trade edition books pro rata. All of the books in the bibliography are of collectable value, the English firsts more so than the American.
If you are looking to buy or sell books then our antiquarian booksellers section may be of some assistance.
